Gites la Franconne
Reviewed April 22, 2014

In late March/early April 2014, we stayed a week at Gites La Franconne. The location was excellent, just up a small hill about 1/2 mile from the center of town. Close enough to stroll into town, but far enough away to be tranquil and away from any traffic. Our host Juliette was very friendly, gracious and most helpful with information about the town and region.

La Franconne is 3 gites, each with their own private patio. Each self contained until had a big double bed, sofa, table and 4 chairs in the open living area. A separate bedroom contained single bunk beds and would be perfect for families. The kitchen had everything one needed to cook (cooktop, m/wave, convenction oven, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, and enough plates, utensils and cutlery for 6 people). The bathroom was spacious with shower, toilet and sink. The patio contained a large table and 4 chairs for relaxing under the arbour!

The property neighbours a vineyard so there are wonderful views out onto the countryside and in the distance is the imposing Mont Ventoux. Wonderful. The property also contains a swimming pool, but our visit was much too early in the season for the pool to be open!

The units were CLEAN, neat, tidy and very well maintained. The furniture is in very good condition and everything met or exceeded all our expectations. We opted to "rent" bedding and linens from Juliette and this was well worth it. All were clean, fresh and stylish!

We do not hesitate to recommend La Franconne. The setting is perfect for couples, small families or groups travelling together. The town of Mirabel is charming and has a wonderful bakery and grocery story. As noted, the owner and hostess Juliette was charming, gracious, helpful and eager to ensure we had a good stay.

Room Tip: The gite facing east has a wonderful view of Mont Ventoux from the patio.

In the midst of the Baronnies Hills nereby the Mont Ventoux, you will find the 3 La Françonne gites, only 500 meters from Mirabel aux Baronnies, close to Vaison La Romaine, close to Nyons.

Each gite is suitable for up to 4 persons, with a fully equiped kitchen, air conditioning, a private garden and a wonderful swimming pool with a view on the Mont Ventoux.

Stefan and Juliëtte, the owners, are very nice. They are always willing to give you good advice concerning nice spots, good restaurants or whatever you want to know.

They are Dutch and speak fluently French, English, German and Dutch.
